? Any recommendations? Seems like it would be very hard to achieve any kind of survivability

That's precisely the reason I wouldn't bother with it. The sustain of a phys build feels far too good.

In general I feel the IED rollout is still under way. We can't have IED having only 1 real mean of getting sustain (UMO), since all the other sources of it pale in comparison to phys leech. It's not even close.

Sooo I've been throwing them sticks for some time now. Currently at lvl 135. I could go up to the poison build except the Astrogha set. For a month of Duncraig (which feels like a warm home now) farming, I feel like I can build a Barbarian army but no luck on any of the physical late game items except

Can't get Astrogha, Atanna Khan or Stormcaller v3.0 for the life of me but that's for obvious reasons as poison isn't really good for bossing.

So what I'm asking is, can somebody please recommend an alternative physical build/items for me? I'm really tired of gridning Duncraig for at least 10+ hours a week with poison. Would like to do something else, hunt trophies, hunt bosses etc...

Here's my current setup: https://tsw.vn.cz/char/Xendaya

Temper your expectations if you aren't trading or have built a stockpile of items in SP since 2.0 launched. SSF in this game isn't easy. It'll be very long til you find all the lategame items yourself. Midgame items are more likely and you can accomplish a lot even with just those. Hence why I vehemently oppose anyone sticking to SSF who come from modern ARPGs and expect same level of success playing SSF. We don't have nearly the same venues to get focus farm your slots/uniques.


What masochista said is basically what's in the midgame section of phys javazon for the most part. Angel Heart the only substitute I didn't mention and it's fairly close to Athulua's Oracle so that's fine.

Thanks a lot for the suggestions. As fuppy said these are already things I have but yeah I can switch to these again just for the sake of changing the flow.

Don't get me wrong, I am a pretty hardcore player and I've been gaming 30+ years, started median in about 2008 :D So I know what is a grind but I also definitely understand what you're coming at with modern ARPGs. This game is definitely something else. Anyways...let me check what I can do with what I have and then maybe switch to something fresh for a while and then turn back to my Javazon.

Get a shamanaka and qarak sword and hellrain

Shamanaka gives a 2nd stacking bloodlust, qarak boosts your bloodlust, and sharkbaiter adds another 24% to each one -48% free ewd.

Toss on a cheap hellrain and you get 1% deadly per 5% Fire dmg - bloodlust adds 100% very easily and can break 200%

Image

That's all from boosting bloodlust, 400% ewd and 230% or so fire dmg giving nearly 50% deadly strike from only your weapon. It's a massive buff if you're lvl 100+ and strugle with any dmg/healing.

It's a basic easy setup, only skills you won't have till higher is mastery/deadly strike/ewd from Scorpion- but you'll get the points as need arises

Hell I think I have a clean version of all 3 if you can't find one /don't have one

Runeword dawn with 5x15% Enhanced dmg before making the word will give you 310-350 enhanced dmg, on top of those 75% stat boosts. (335% eth maiden jav did 382-478 dmg. The throwing spear may have 4 slots and a higher base dmg of 401-510+ but it does about 102% less dmg from dex bonus)

Cheap easy consistent alternative that you can customize.

Askari was too much work to function like a worse elemental bow. Titans does better for solo as you reach 150.

But hellrain with shamanaka is the easiest method to lvl from 100-150 quick without difficulty.

Solitude umos on a gear slot using honored Equip (2x orb boost) will cover any and all healing needs. 4/5% was adequate if you avoid stuff. 10% is obscene, 20% you have to try to die, and 30% (highest I've tried) you can stand in everything lol.

How are you guys sustaining mana on boss fights? Single target I got OOM way to fast. Mana pots cant even keep up.
